He recently revealed that the friendly games vs Algeria and Tunisia were needed as they gave his boys competitive matches to be a part of during the break.
According to him, the new players have done well so he expects to find it hard to decide on the first XI when the qualifiers start.
He added that he is looking forward to returning to winning ways vs Sierra Leone next month and eventually qualify for AFCON in 2022.
His words, “We are happy to have had this opportunity to be camped in Austria for 10 days. It was a very good feeling to be together again after being away for 11 months, although we missed some key players,”
“The two friendly games we played were very good competitive games. Algeria and Tunisia are very good teams.
“Indeed, the results could have been better. We could have picked up a draw against Algeria and a win against Tunisia.
“We have some positives to pick out from the games because in spite of missing some key players we still competed well.
“Now, it is going to be difficult for me to pick our list for the Afcon qualifiers next month because of the new boys who did well.
“I believe these very good friendly games will help us to return to winning ways when we play Sierra Leone next month. Good results next month may see us qualifying for the 2022 Afcon already.”
